Baked Zucchini Recipe

Baked zucchini slices or bites are bursting with the same great flavors as fried! 
Give it a try!

A much healthier version than fried. and still full of flavor. Easy to spread on a cookie sheet and bake until golden not having to cook over the stove. The crispy outside is very flavorful and still will give you the Italian taste we grew up with, healthier version with less fat content from deep frying.

I have to say it didn't compromise the taste and I fooled everyone, no one thought these weren't fried!

 Sometimes I make a batch baked then add marinara and mozzarella on top for a treat!

A delicious alternative if your watching your cholesterol.

Baked Zucchini Slices
2 or 3 zucchini sliced

1/2 teaspoon each salt, pepper, oregano, granulated garlic.

Dip the zucchini in egg whites.

In the large zip lock bag with the flour mixture, toss the zucchini slices ( into the bag to coat.

Next dip the flour coated zucchini back into the egg white mixture just to moisten a little.

Drizzle tops with a little olive oil.
